Dear Grace & Pauline...my heart is heavy as I couldn’t attend the wake due to another commitment. My memories of Peter are enormous! That beautiful smile & the way he greeted me is etched in my heart forever! I loved your mom & the way she raised & took care of Peter & Joey which was so inspirational. She was amazing!
Now Peter, Joey & your mom are together embraced in the tender arms of each other ...your mom with her precious boys together in the kingdom of Heaven.
Peter was so blessed to have you Grace & your beautiful family there for him with unconditional love.
God bless you all at this most difficult time.

Ever loving, smiling and helpful...these are the qualities I will always cherish of my beloved cousin Peter. Remembering how easily he would converse with anyone from family, friends and yes those Stop and Shop customer he eagerly helped.
Grace you have been the most exemplary sister anyone could ever hope for. The loving care you gave to Peter and brother Joey is testimony of the love you have for them.
God Bless you. RIP Peter

I will always remember Peter for his smile and his gentle nature. He loved being a member of the Knights of Columbus, and when he was able to be active he was among the most enthusiastic and tireless members. Prayers of comfort for Grace and Gary and family, and for my brother Knights. Rest easy Peter. No more suffering now.
